The Infanta is the twelve-year-old daughter of the King of Spain. A big show is put on for her birthday with music, magicians, and rides, but the funniest act is an ugly dancing dwarf. The Infanta throws him a rose, which he interprets as a sign of love. When he tries to find her in the palace he comes face to face with his own image in a mirror for the first time and realizes that he is ugly and only used as an object for the Infanta to laugh at. When she comes into the room, she orders him to dance but he just lies on the floor. The doctor tells her that the dwarf has died of a broken heart.
